Love my TDI Bug!
By zilym on


2001 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS TDI 2dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Had it for over a year and still LOVE
my bug. It's so much fun to drive! The
power steering, power brakes, cruise
control, fully adjustable seats, drive
by wire accelerator, and everything
just makes driving it effortless. The
TDI engine is great for turning heads
at stop lights (noisy diesel idle in a
car!), and yet quieter than a gas
engine while you're cruising at highway
speeds (which is great for listening to
classical music). Not to mention the
incredible torque the TDI has for
quickly accelerating from a stop or
going up hills. Fun, fun, fun!

Best Features

The TDI Engine! Lower RPMs so cruising is quieter than gas engines. High torque, low fuel consumption. Goes 600 miles between stops for fuel!

Worst Features

The plastic VW uses for the interior door handles seems designed to flake and peel. What were they smoking that day??
